Coconut Cauliflower Mash

This amazing dish came from my friends over at Precision Nutrition
It's a great replacement for your Thanksgiving day mashed potatoes. 

Cauliflower (rough chopped) 3 cups
Cashews (crushed) ¼ cup
Coconut milk ¼ cup
Salt 1 pinch
Pepper 1 pinch
Cinnamon 1 pinch
Serving Size
Serves 1 large or 2 small.
Preparation Time
2 min. Preparation Time
15 min.  Cooking Time
If you like mashed potatoes but worry about the high-carb content, worry no longer. Mashed cauliflower tastes just like mashed potato but has far fewer calories and packs a bigger nutrient punch. In this recipe, we’ve included a crunchy twist to mashed potatoes by adding cashews.
Add all the ingredients to a pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Simmer for 15 minutes and then remove from heat. Purée in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time if necessary to get the mixture moving. Serves 1 large or 2 small.
Variations and Options
For a great anytime meal, serve with homemade Sirloin Burgers (pg.90). For a great soup, add a cup of broth to this recipe when blending. Refer to page 266 for instructions on blending hot mixtures. For additional flavoring, try adding your favorite herbs to the mash. Paprika, safflower, or coriander are awesome spices to try in this recipe. If you don’t have a food processor, you can mash with a fork.

  1. 3 Studies SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually get rid of fat by consuming coconut fat (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from big medicinal journals are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world around!
